Make sure you age it
I'll say this upfront, I've always been a fan of Romeo y Julieta cigars so my review may be a little biased.
Overall, a good smoke; very even burn, smooth draw and good construction. The taste was very much typical Romeo y Julieta - mild to start switching to medium spicy for the last third. I found that the flavours were not quite as complex as I was used to with other types of Romeo y Julieta but I'm sure that was due to not aging it long enough in my humidor. I've read that the Cedros De Luxe in particular really benefit from aging. I aged mine for only 7 months or so and I think it would have been better had I left it for a year or two instead.
- If this cigar were the youngest of three brothers, the ryj Cazadores would be the strong oldest brother. The Boli gold medal would be the medium middle. The ryj Cedros 1 is milder but builds up in earthy woodsy character
an enjoyable smoke
- I received this cigar as part of the All Stars Sampler Pack. The cigar has a beautiful wrapper and good construction. I found it to be a mild, pleasant smoke with subtle flavor - very enjoyable.
- This has a decent construction, steady burn and OK flavours. There is no wow factor, but not bad at all. I'd buy singles of these, but not a box.
